(AP Photo/Elise Amendola)BOSTON — The Boston Celtics are running out of time to work out their kinks with the postseason a month away.For the second time in just over a week, they needed some late-game heroics to fend off a Kings team whose playoff hopes have been fading for weeks.ADVERTISEMENT Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? Sacramento had split the first two games of its four-game trip. The Kings were hoping for a boost with rookie Marvin Bagley III returning after spraining his left knee in a home loss to Milwaukee on Feb. 27 and missing five games.He played only 10 minutes in the first half but had 10 points to help the Kings build a 17-point lead. He finished with 14 points and six rebounds.The Celtics returned home on the mend following a 3-1 West Coast trip.Jayson Tatum was back in the starting lineup after missing a game with right shoulder soreness. Smart was battling a cold but also started. Meanwhile, Terry Rozier and Daniel Theis both sat out with illnesses.It had its effect. Despite playing on two days’ rest, the Celtics were slow on switches on defense and relied on jump shots early. They stayed close thanks in large part to Irving’s 19 first-half points.Boston was much more energetic in the third quarter, opening on a 9-2 run to take its first lead since early in the first quarter.Sacramento led 89-79 with less than three minutes to play in the period before a 3 by Irving and three straight 3-pointers by Brown put the Celtics back in front.Boston led by as many as 13 in the fourth quarter.TIP-INSKings: Outscored the Celtics 22-11 in fast-break points.

Harrison Barnes added 20, and De’Aaron Fox had 19 points, nine assists and seven rounds as the Kings lost for the 11th straight time in Boston.The Kings have dropped 13 of 17 road games as their hopes of catching the Clippers for the Western Conference’s final playoff spot took another hit.“Still believe we have a chance to make the playoffs,” Hield said. “We suck right now. We have to close out games better and I don’t know if it’s the pressure or something else.”ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

Judge: Protect fish or stop pumping

Specifically, Roesch said the water agency should apply for permits that would allow it to kill spring and winter runs of salmon and Delta smelt, which are protected under the California Endangered Species Act. The ruling pleased sport fishing groups that have long criticized the state’s operation of the enormous pumps, which suck in and kill salmon and other fish. “It’s certainly an earthshaking decision,” said Bill Jennings, executive director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance, which had sued the state. SACRAMENTO – In a decision that could cripple water deliveries to California farms and cities, a judge has ordered the state to halt pumping water out of the delta within 60 days unless it complies with environmental laws that protect endangered fish. State water officials on Friday said they cannot meet the short deadline and hope to persuade the court to reconsider cutting off water to the San Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley and Southern California. “We’re perplexed by the court’s ruling,” state Department of Water Resources Director Lester Snow said in a conference call with reporters. “The way that would harm the economy is not in the best interests of anyone.” Thursday’s ruling by Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch found that the Department of Water Resources lacks the proper authority to run a key station that pumps water from the delta into the California Aqueduct. last_img read more

PSG confirm Thomas Tuchel as new coach

first_img“It is with much joy, pride and ambition that I am joining this big club,” said Tuchel in a statement released by PSG.“I can’t wait to start working with all these great players who are all amongst the best in the world.“Paris Saint-Germain has enormous potential and it is by far the most exciting proposition in football.”According to French sports daily L’Equipe, Tuchel was recommended directly to Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani by the Qatari consul in Germany.At one point linked to Arsenal before Arsene Wenger announced he would be leaving the Premier League club, Tuchel will begin his new role in early July with the start of pre-season training.It was an open secret that Tuchel had been lined up as the next coach of the ambitious club from the French capital.They had been on the look-out for a replacement for Emery since being beaten 5-2 on aggregate by Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League in March.That disappointment in Europe, following a humiliating loss against Barcelona at the same stage a year ago, meant there was no chance of Emery’s two-year contract being renewed at the end of this campaign.Emery has nevertheless just overseen a clean sweep of the domestic honours in France this season, after winning the French Cup, League Cup and season-opening Champions Trophy in his first campaign.Tuchel was a free agent after leaving Borussia Dortmund a year ago, despite leading the team to victory in last season’s German Cup.“Thomas is one of the best and most competitive European coaches to have emerged over the last few seasons,” declared PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.“He abides by very strong principles of playing spectacular and clinical football that has always been the foundation of German football, especially on the international scene.“His competitive spirit, his preference for attacking football and his strong character are in line with what we have always wanted for Paris Saint-Germain.”– Unproven in Europe –Tuchel becomes the fifth different man to coach PSG since Qatar Sports Investments bought the club in 2011, following Antoine Kombouare, Carlo Ancelotti, Laurent Blanc and Emery.He will be tasked with ensuring that they continue to dominate at home while finally making a major impression in the Champions League, having failed to go beyond the quarter-finals in the Qatar era.Tuchel will also have to find a way of keeping Neymar happy, providing the world’s most expensive player remains in France for a second season.However, Tuchel — a modest player whose career was cut short by a knee injury — is not yet proven as a coach at the highest level.He did an admirable job in charge of Mainz, before succeeding Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund in 2015.His first season saw Dortmund finish runners-up to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and the German Cup, while losing to Klopp’s Liverpool in the Europa League quarter-finals.Last season, Tuchel’s side slipped to third in the Bundesliga and lost to Monaco in the Champions League quarter-finals, but they did beat Eintracht Frankfurt in the Cup final.A falling-out with the Dortmund hierarchy cost him as job, and he had been out of work since then.PSG wrapped up this season’s Ligue 1 title with five games to spare. Emery, who on Sunday was named as France’s coach of the year, will lead the side for the last time against Caen this weekend.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eye on the objective: German Thomas Tuchel says he has just accepted ‘the most exciting proposition in football’ after being appointed the successor to Unai Emery at Paris Saint-Germain © AFP/File / PATRIK STOLLARZPARIS, France, May 14 – Thomas Tuchel has been appointed as the new coach of Paris Saint-Germain on a two-year deal, the French champions confirmed on Monday.The 44-year-old German has agreed to succeed Unai Emery, who will leave the Qatar-owned side after the final game of the French season this weekend.last_img read more

San Jose Sharks “a little embarrassed” with where they’re at right now

first_imgSAN JOSE — The Sharks are hoping a little more attitude in their game — and both ends of the ice — might go a long way into turning their season around.The Sharks haven’t come close in recent games to playing to their identity as a relentless, pressuring team. Too often they’ve had the pace of play dictated to them rather than asserting themselves in all three zones.The Sharks haven’t had a lead at any point in their last seven periods entering Friday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Web site scanning for vulnerabilities

first_imgBy one estimate more than 50-60% of all Web applications and web sites contain some critical vulnerability that can be easily compromised. Using SSL, firewalls and locked-down servers can lead to a sense of security, but none of these things address the issue of web application hacking — attacks made through ports 80 and 443.Database-driven dynamic content is clearly the main area of vulnerability. Any web app that operates dynamically based on user input has the potential to be compromised by maliciously altering the data communicated to the server.Two common types of vulnerabilities are called SQL Injection and Cross Site Scripting (XSS).  SQL injection is the ability to inject and run arbitrary SQL code without having standard database access.   XSS means to forcibly insert html or script into another web page.Scanning software is now available that can automatically exercise pages of a web application, looking for potential vulnerabilities. Whitehat security has a good set of slides describing web application vulnerability issues.  It discusses limitations of today’s web scanning software.  The current generation of software is really only good at looking at technical vulnerabilities.  There is another realm of logical vulnerability issues not addressed.  And then there is a big hurdle for being able to identify and load scenarios into the web scan software so it knows how to access all or most pages of the application.Given these limitations, it still seems like web scanning software is a huge step forward to identify vulnerabilities.  At Formtek, our development and engineering groups have used a couple of these Web Scan products: WatchFire and Acunetix.We were basically pleased with the results.  Working with our QA people, we identified scenarios that do thorough coverage of our app web pages.  With the scenarios in place, we then pointed the scanners to our web-based apps.  The reports that were generated were very detailed.  They also alerted us to some things we had never considered.  I’d recommend the use of the web scanning tools.Based on our findings, the Formtek | Orion version patch was created.  Re-running the scan tools against this version of Orion came up clean.  Going forward, we plan to make the use of a web application scanner a standard part of the Formtek QA test cycle.last_img read more

Download Now My wife and I had no sooner sat down to dinner and the waitress was already standing at the edge of our table, ready to take our drink orders. That might seem like good service, but we literally hadn’t even placed the napkin on our laps. So, we ordered something to drink.The drinks were brought to our table immediately, and the waitress asked if she could take our orders. This is one of the funky, cool, independent restaurants we frequent, and since we always order the same thing, we gave the waitress our order. When the waitress left the table, we started talking about all of the stuff we have going on with kids, work, and other family stuff. We were catching up after not really having a chance to during our always hectic weeks.It might have been four minutes before the waitress was back with our food. She quickly and efficiently dropped the food on the table and asked if we needed anything else. Neither of us had our phones turned on. We didn’t have enough time to even begin to have a conversation, but now our dinner was sitting in front of us.The food was great and we took our time eating. As we were halfway through dinner, our waitress was back with our check, leaving it on the table and speeding off to clear the surrounding tables. She didn’t ask about dessert. She didn’t ask about coffee. She didn’t ask if we’d like to order anything else. We would have said “yes,” to almost anything she offered just to have the time to hang out and chat.I thought maybe it was our waitress, but I looked around and noticed that the entire staff was moving at this same pace. In fact, all the tables that had been full when we walked in had been turned, and there was no line of people waiting to be seated or served.Level 1 Value is a product. The value you create at Level 1 is efficiency. That’s great for transactional sales models, like McDonald’s. But it isn’t the right level of value for funky, cool, eclectic restaurants that are competing on experience, Level 2 Value. Experience isn’t about efficiency. Experience is about how you make people feel.If what you sell is experience, then efficiency isn’t the right area to focus. The right place to focus is feelings.last_img read more
